A Universal Monster

In a breeze - the silhouettes of trees
Beyond their play another sunset bleeds - and I'm in for nasty weather
It gets late - I change, I roam, I wait
Standing at your gate and I know well - we'll never be together

I am just a universal monster
even in my homeland without grace
Everybody here knows better than to touch me
in this black and ashen place
All the scars and cracks I wear upon my body
tell a tragic story about sin
Whether it is mine or something someone dealt me
will only matter, only matter, only matter in the end

Everywhere I enter I am met by
a shocked and shackled gaze
And I feel sorry for their shattered eyeballs
as they try to figure out my face
The deeds they say I've done have torn me all to pieces
underneath a manic moon
Their torches coming quickly - won't you please forgive them
for the script has told them what to do

In a breeze - the silhouettes of trees
Beyond their play another sunset bleeds - and I'm in for nasty weather
I'm in for nasty weather

She believes that each song should paint a portrait and set a unique, cinematic scene at that strange point where words meet music. Rain desires to be a player in a revolution that refocuses the worlds lovers of music back onto the song. ... more
